“Oh yes, this one’s for all you lemon lovers. Today’s post brings back one of my favorite drinks, the whiskey sour with some additional lemon-y twists. On top of shaking with fresh lemon juice, I’ve also added Limoncello, and sweetened it with some homemade rosemary lemon peel syrup. With all the lemon ingredients, you can bet this is bursting with lemon-y flavors but not at all overpowering. Okay I’ll stop saying the word lemon now. Cheers, stay safe, stay healthy! Lemon.
